It’s that time again; it’s You Beauty Box time! If you’re not familiar with You Beauty it is similar to the likes of Glossybox and Birchbox, but in my opinion it is so much better! How is it better? It’s simple really: the box is £6.95 a month, including p&p, and you get to choose which two items you want in your box – no perfume sample freebies here. On top of choosing the two products, You Beauty throw in a few extra treats as a bonus.
So above are all the things that arrived in my box, look how full it is, this is £6.95, and that is the extensive array of products I received. Pretty impressive really, and like I said earlier: no perfume samples. The menu to choose from this month was all based around travel beauty bits. You can see everything you could have chosen here.
Now the extra treats this month were some of the best I have had so far. First is the St. Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan, I’ve been reading reviews about this and I think it may be a tan I actually try. Usually I shy away from any form of fake tans fearing that they’ll turn me from porcelain to orange. Most reviews have said that this is more of a tan maintainer than a full on fake tan so it should only leave me with a faint bronzed glow. Also I have a coupon for £2 off another tube of this should I like it. There is also a Muesli Breaks Oatcake which I have given my mum to try as I am not an oatcake fan. Finally there is a sample sachet of the Emma Hardie Protect & Prime SPF 30 and also a discount code for 10% off all Emma Hardie products!
On to the products I picked… First, was an obvious choice for me, the Wild About Beauty Nutrilips Colour SPF 15 lipstick. I received this in the shade Maddy which looks a lot like a ‘Kylie Jenner lip colour.’ The packaging is a gorgeous purpley black colour and the product has and inoffensive vanilla smell. The next product/s I chose were from Vichy; these are the Purete Thermal 3 in 1 cleanser, toner and makeup remover, which FYI smells incredible! And also he Idealia Life Serum, which is a teeny tiny sample size.
Overall I am very happy with the box, in face there’s going to be a St. Tropez Tan review very soon I can assure you. So have you ever subscribed to You Beauty? Is it the kind of box you are interested in?
